In this project, the City of Elgin was awarded $4 million in Illinois Environmental Protection Agency funding that will be used to replace the private side water service from the city’s b-box/shut-off valve to the meter inside the affected property.
The City identified 312 partial lead water service lines targeted for replacement in this project at no cost to the property owner. The affected property owners have been notified and the project is currently in progress with an expected completion date of May 2023.

Virtual Public Information Meetings
To better inform the affected property owners, the City held two virtual public information meetings to discuss the replacement of the lead service lines, specifically the private portion of the lead water service line from the City's shut off valve to the internal water meter. The meetings were not mandatory but were recommended for anyone who had questions about the project.
If you received a letter but were unable to attend, we strongly encourage you to watch a recording of one of the meetings to learn details of the project and the critical items each property owner will be required to participate in with respect to the replacement of their partial lead water service line.
